Both here, too, as long as you understand they are both nothing more than a tool. I use the scale every single day and it has taught me a lot about my body. I also understand now that I have a very solid, very frustrating pattern of losing big (like 5-7 pounds big) one week out of every month and stall the other three.
When I didn't know that, I used to give up, gaining anything lost plus friends each and every time.
I have also learned that I lose weight without losing inches BUT I also lose inches without losing weight. For me, they don't coincide. Just recently I lost 8 pounds in one week and when I excitedly measured I was disappointed to find the only place I could find I'd lost inches was a half inch in each thigh. With 8 pounds? Really? This week I've stalled and have lost 1.5 inches off my waist, hips and chest, each!
Most importantly though, I use the scale because it is what's going to keep me honest in maintenance. If I have to face that scale every single day, I can never again bury my head in the sand. The problem with judging by clothing fit, especially in the plus sizes, is that a good 20+ pounds can go by without even noticing. That's a lot! That's what happened to me. I finally bit the bullet and bought those 18's, which were loose. I felt good that they were loose. I wasn't that bad. Then slowly, too slowly to notice, those 18's grew snug until I finally bit the bullet to go up "just one more size". Well boy, I hadn't realized that was the difference between weighing 207 and weighing 235.
